Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Debunking myths, separating fact from fiction, this book is an indispensable guide to understanding what really happened in our most recent election." - Gerald Barry, Editor, This Week, RTE Radio

"Over the past two decades the How Ireland Voted series has tracked election after election, providing the authoritative account by leading political science experts on Irish politics. How Ireland Voted 2007 is a must-read for any observer of Irish electoral politics, but particularly for those interested in understanding the background to, nature, and wider political outcomes of this extraordinary election." - David Farrell, University of Manchester, UK

"Gallagher and Marsh have assembled an impressive team of investigators to conduct a forensic examination of the Irish political scene, before, during and after the 2007 election. This report of their findings makes for fascinating reading and it will endure as the definitive account of what happened and why." - Noel Whelan, Political Analyst, Irish Times & RTE

"Surpasses its excellent predecessors by doing everything they did, and doing it really well, then adding fascinating new perspectives on matters such as the fulfilment of campaign pledges, the performance of both opinion polls and bookies in predicting the result, and the role of the media during the campaign." - Professor Michael Laver, New York University

"The most impressive How Ireland Voted volume to date." - John Garry, Irish Political Studies

"The achievement of the editors in shaping this book — and indeed in establishing this series — ranks among the most impressive in the ever-expanding academic literature on Irish elections." - John Bowman, Irish Times
